Chicken Tortellini Soup is a filling soup with shredded chicken, rosemary and cheesy tortellini. This hearty chicken soup is ready in 30 min!
Some of my favorite soups are the kind of soups that take some time to prepare like Split Pea with Ham , Chili or Beef Barley Soup The soups that require you to start the broth early in the morning and let it simmer all day. This soup however, is not one of those soups. It just tastes like one.
With a little help from a store bought rotisserie chicken (or any leftover chicken you might have on hand) and some store bought tortellini, Chicken Tortellini Soup comes together in under 30 minutes. Making it the perfect soup to make on a cool weeknight evening.
Let’s talk about all the ingredients you’ll need to make it:
You guys, this soup is SO easy to make. Simply simmer the chicken, rosemary and about 10 cloves of garlic together for 20 or so minutes. Then add in the tortellini and cook just until the tortellini is cooked through. That’s it.
Chicken Tortellini Soup is best eaten the day that it is made because when storing the tortellini with the broth, the tortellini will absorb the broth. This will make the tortellini mushy and won’t leave you with much broth.
My whole family loved this Chicken Tortellini Soup! It’s quick and simple. It’s satisfying and is the perfect soup for any cool fall day.
